ADES, César. From the animal that survives from air, and so on: a short story of Ethology in Brazil. Bol. - Acad. Paul. Psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.1, pp. 90-104. ISSN 1415-711X.

The anecdotic interest for animal behavior in Brazil begins with the travelers, journalists and missionaries of the XVI-XVIIth. centuries; our animals began to be observed at the end of the XVIIIth. century by Alexandre Rodrigues Ferreira, apart, however, from the ethological point of view. Fritz Müller, who lived in Santa Catarina during the XIXth. century, contributed with pioneering studies in the area, but his works did not reach any local repercussion. Ethology becomes stronger within us during the second half of the XXth. century, with courses and researches at the Psychology Institute of USP, with the opening of the Ethology Meetings and the creation of the Brazilian Society of Ethology, among other initiatives. At the beginning of the XXIth. century, it reached a complete and diversified scientific productivity, which is to date still under development.
